Lots of smoke about a Jimmy deal to Cleveland. We shall see very quickly what the reality of this deal is.

I can't wait for him to be off this team forever. I don't care where he goes, just shooo shoo shoo.

Jimmy Butler Reportedly Told by Cavaliers Players to Avoid Team After GM's Exit
Cleveland Cavaliers players have reportedly told Chicago Bulls star Jimmy Butler to avoid a trade to the reigning Eastern Conference champions due to the group's uncertain future following the departure of general manager David Griffin this week.

On Wednesday, Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reported members of the Cavs who previously urged Butler to push for a deal to join the organization are now telling him the opposite. They are worried about an early "unforeseen early breakup" of the star-studded roster.

However, Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net spoke to a source who said there is "zero truth" to the report and that it's an "absolute fabrication."

The 27-year-old Texas native quickly emerged as potential target for Cleveland following the team's five-game loss to the Golden State Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals. He would have provided the Cavaliers with more firepower to challenge the Dubs in the increasingly top-heavy league.

Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago confirmed the Bulls are "shopping" Butler ahead of the 2017 NBA draft Thursday night, and he noted the Cavs "seemed to be on the Bulls' doorstep" before Griffin's exit.

Holy shit. The Cavs could be imploding and LeBron could be on the way out again, all because Dan Gilbert is a fucking moron.
